A Very Coco Christmas: A Coco Pinchard Christmas novella (Coco Pinchard 0.5) by Robert Bryndza
It’s 1985, and eighteen-year-old Coco is home in London for Christmas after her first term at Aberystwyth University. She has started to write, and fallen hopelessly in love with Daniel Pinchard, a devilishly handsome musician from the wrong side of the river.
But Coco’s overbearing mother has other plans and resumes her campaign for Coco to meet and marry the ‘right sort of man’, preferably Kenneth, son of her best friends Adrian and Yvonne Rosebury, who will be joining them for Christmas.
As snow falls softly over the city, and Coco tries to juggle a series of hilarious events, the stage is set for a Christmas lunch like no other.
A Very Coco Christmas is a delicious, stand-alone prequel to the smash-hit Coco Pinchard series, with a glorious cast of characters including Daniel’s mother Ethel, sister Meryl – and a turkey called Jean Paul Belmondo...
I got this from Amazon and it's a delightful little novella to read.
This introduces us to Coco, Daniel, Ethel, Meryl and Chris. It's Christmas and with all the shenanigans going on in a family. Where 2 families meet and then something pops up - namely a turkey called Jean Paul Belmondo (what a hoot of a name for a turkey).
I read this quickly as it was a short book and loved the characters especially Coco's mum lol.
